Using RSS to Enrich Your Life

Version 3

    RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, or as one hip Web site chooses to call it, Ready for Some Stories. In layman’s terms, they describe RSS this way:

    With RSS, you can “subscribe” to a website or blog, and get “fed” all the new headlines from all of [your subscribed] sites and blogs in one list, and see what’s going on in minutes instead of hours.


    Setting up a resource to view all your subscriptions in one place is fairly easy--although the hardest part is choosing how you will receive your subscriptions. Although many options are available, here are three Web-based choices that require no software installation:


    Option 1: Creating a Simple RSS Subscription with Your Browser


    Option 2: Using an RSS Reader


    Option 3: Creating a Customizable Homepage (be patient! It's coming!)
